While 2009 was indubitably the year of ‘Major’ Ricky Foo, 2010 is shaping up quite nicely for Alex Loon, the unassuming Singapore Management University under-graduate who has been quietly making waves in the Asian poker scene. Fresh off his runner-up finish on the online reality-TV series The Asian Poker Showdown, Alex recorded a mightily impressive side-event run in the recently concluded Asia Pacific Poker Tour stop in Macau. Alex final-tabled a whopping six events, posting one win, three runner-up spots, one third, and a fourth. Pokerkaki.com caught up with Alex in the midst of the hottest streak of his young poker career, which he hopes to carry forward into the upcoming World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
